Bear hunt

Minnesota's bear harvest stood at 1,732 bears as of last week, a little more than two weeks into the season, said Dave Garshelis, leader of Minnesota's bear project for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.


About 82 percent of the bear harvest typically occurs in the season's first two weeks. Garshelis said he expected a final harvest of about 1,900 bears. The season opened Sept. 1 and continues through Oct. 16.
